of that for you. thomas. >> kristin welker stay with us. i'll bring in our political power panel. we have perry bacon, msnbc contributor and political editor. ted strickland and also hogan gidly. it's great to have all of you with me and i want sto start with perry. this is really a strong message coming out of the romney campaign. the most coordinated response yet to the president's bain attacks, and certainly time is of the essence on this one, perry. but is it enough to change the narrative in romney's favor? >> i don't think it is. i mean, you saw on friday he did five interviews with every outlet, every major network and he didn't address the questions about his tax returns or exactly when he left bain. i mean, it's unusual you do five interviews all over the place in terms of exposure but still don't answer the core questions. i almost feel like he name a vice presidential nominee to change the subject right now. >> as perry mentioned, we have the five different interviews on friday then the sunday talkers and the advisers, the staffers, they have taken to the tv to really try to hammer b

what kristen was mentioning to us, the president kicking off his bus tour tomorrow. pawlenty and jindal will bracketing with him and rob portman as well, traveling to new hampshire this weekend. no word if he'll be meeting with romney. where do we stand in terms of the what's the messaging we're looking for going forward as the president goes out there and tries to make the message, put the message out there, that romney is a jobs expovertier? >> of course, the message that the obama campaign has been pushing hard from the very beginning is attacking mitt romney's record at bain capital. and as controversial as that tactic has been from both republicans and democrats, most notably corey booker and bill clinton, that's really the lane that the obama campaign is staying in. and they're sort of attacking bain capital from every angle they can find, their latest political attack ad against romney focused on bain capital investing in companies that ship jobs overseas. and that's -- i think it's a strategy that's really been working for the obama campaign. he's been able to paint romney as so

pages. it is a massive report. give us the highlights of some of the findings. >> reporter: well, craig, i think this is damning beyond football. it's damning of the entire penn state university culture. it singles out four individuals at the top. the president here for a long time, graham spanier, the athletic director tim curley, and joe paterno, the late football coach. louis freeh was clear in saying it was those four individuals who he thinks were responsible for this cultural problem here, this failure to report or protect the children who were abused here over at least 14 years. in the sandusky criminal case that just concluded, there were eight individuals involved but there's thought there were many children victimized during this time. to summarize the findings, here are a few examples. the report said there was a total disregard for the safety and welfare of the victims. the penn state officials failed to take steps for 14 years. he said that paterno, spanier, curley and shultz repeatedly concealed facts and knew what was going on here as far back as 1998 and several occasion

the words in the first few pages, i didn't see the word cover-up. did you hear that used today at all used by louis freeh? >> reporter: yes, yes. cover-up, conspiracy, he stopped short of because it's a legal term, but he left no doubt that there were active things done. there's a trail of e-mails, a trail of conversations that they were able to identify by talking to hundreds of witnesses that clearly showed that these four men, in his opinion, actively did things to conceal and protect the university. louis freeh said a number of times that their motivation was to avoid bad publicity. not to protect children. he said the culture here was about protecting adults and not protecting children. so maybe the word cover-up or conspiracy wasn't used because of the legality that that all implies, and he was saying he was not laying out a legal case. that was up to a grand jury. but in his mind, it's clear that these four individuals, key leaders at this university, actively did things to protect jerry sandusky. >> the paterno family taking issue with many of the allegations made. some of the thin

with stations in battleground states after this statement. he'll also be traveling to iowa tomorrow. but give us a sense of why the timing, why now is this statement coming out? >> well, in part, richard, because it allows the president to pivot away from last friday's disappointing jobs report and back on to tax fairness, something that he sees really as a winning issue. it's also sort of a reminder of the built-in power of being president in an election year. president obama can use his pulpit to talk about tax fairness for middle classes. you said, president obama will be calling and pressing congress to extend the bush-era tax cuts for folks making less than $250,000. republicans on the hill already armed with their responses. we've been getting eames this morning essentially saying, look, this is a fight we're willing to have because they are framing this as a tax increase on small businesses. the romney campaign also putting out a statement this morning saying that what the president is calling for amounts to a tax increase on small businesses. they think when you stack up the two argument

of this has to do with the idea of putting mitt romney in a position where he has stories about how he uses overseas shelters to save taxes. he is fighting to keep his own tax cut in place. that said, the one thing about the story when you couple it with this tax story, i do think it highlights the fact that here are things that we heard from candidate obama in 2007 and 2008. roll back the bush tax cuts and stop these tax incentives for corporations to ship jobs overseas and he accomplished neither. >> the new poll, the washington poll shows that despite the earlier than usual ads in many places and the supreme court's ruling on health care and immigration, president obama and mitt romney are deadlocked at 47%. it also shows how the vast majority made up their minds. what do those things say about this race? >> we saw this in our poll two weeks ago. there is a hardening of the two political bases and this idea that america is polarized. you are seeing it reflected in the presidential preference numbers that we see in all the polls where you have this between 85 and 90% of democrats sticking
